The DHCP server at my ISP is hardcoded to give my static IP number only
to requests coming from this NIC. It looks at the MAC address.

Speaking of this I noticed this line in /etc/dhclient.conf

#send dhcp-client-identifier 1:0:a0:24:ab:fb:9c;

Will setting this option really override the actual MAC address? The
documentation is a bit scarce. That would be very convenient. In that
case I can experiment with diffrent NICs without having to deal with the
admins at my ISP.

I might do that to. Problem is just that I've run out of old pentium
